Simone came and presented a nutritional seminar to our developing and elite level swimmers, the talk was really engaging full of great anecdotes and useful tips.

5 ways to have your cake and eat it to

I love a good homemade cake, eating and baking it. I don’t feel guilty when I eat cake,and neither should you. As I am a regular to cake eating though, I do as my family know, play around with the ingredients in recipes to boost the nourishment it provides. Sometimes this is with success and other times, mmmm, not so great and a friend once asked me, ‘is this cardboard slice? I may have gone a little far on that one! Some cakes and desserts though I just leave alone and enjoy as they are; vanilla slices, shortbread and my mum’s chocolate cake.What can you do to boost the nutrient density of your cakes or muffins?



A dietitians 5 Brain food picks

We all know the importance of a healthy diet for prevention of disease and to fuel ourselves for exercise –but do we think about fueling the organ in charge of our body; the brain? There are some foods that have more influence on our brain health than others. I thought I would talk about 5 key dietary areas. Let’s take a look. Literally food for thought.



Clean Eating

What do we mean by, ‘Clean eating’, such a marketing and buzz phrase? Clean eating is a term often used to describe eating wholefoods, with minimal or no processing, as close to their natural form as possible. It usually involves a diet with wholegrains,plenty of vegetables and fresh fruit, lean meats, seafood, nuts, seeds and minimal or no added sugars, alcohol or highly processed foods. That is fantastic, and the way we should be eating. Australians eat too many discretionary foods and a poor diet contributes to the global burden of disease related reduce the I think I call it healthy eating! Some products market as 'clean' but are they really? What about gluten free, no added sugar? Have we moved happily onto, 'plant based diet'?
